--- Comment #6 from Andrew Azores <aazores at redhat.com> ---
Completely understandable. Are you familiar with XML file formatting? The
parser is complaining about the file being malformed on the first line, so it
shouldn't be too difficult to find this error, if there truly is one. The first
line should look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

or maybe:

<jnlp spec="1.0" href="some_applet.jnlp" codebase="https://bank.com/applet/">

could you verify if the first line of the file is like this? It's also possible
that the parser is wrong and the error isn't truly on the first line, which is
why it would be easiest to  verify the problem if I had access to the XML

The launchpad bug you've linked appears to be happening for a different cause,
however. I believe that particular has also already been fixed in 1.4 (it's
reported against 1.3).

As for the applet working on Windows and OS X systems, I'm inclined to believe
that that's because users on those systems are almost guaranteed to be using
Oracle's JRE for their webstart client, rather than IcedTea-Web. I doubt it has
anything to do with the OS itself.
